Argonus and the Gods of Stone

Entrant 2020



From the creators of Shadowgate comes Argonus and the Gods of Stone, a first-person legendary adventure game. Paying homage to the great fantasy films of the '60s and '70s, Argonus and the Gods of Stone is set within the world of ancient Greece. You are Argonus, a historian and cartographer, who awakes to find himself lost on strange shores. The Argo, famed ship of hero Jason and his Argonauts, has been pulled onto sharp rocks by a siren's song and now lies shattered in shallow waters. When you discover the fate of your stalwart companions, you must make a deal with a goddess - Stop the blight that has taken untold lives in return for safe passage home or risk succumbing to the bedevilment that stalks this isle...

From vengeful gorgons to sword-wielding skeletons, Argonus and the Gods of Stone captures the dreamy visual style of the stop-motion movies of the 1960s, while showcasing Zojoi's talents of blending unique narrative adventures with mythology and 21st-century game mechanics.
